Hi everyone, I've compiled a list here of amateur filmaking studio websites. If you have a website that I did not list, just let me know and I'll add it to the directory.
= Link of very good quality
Empty Pockets Productions - A group of guys who just love to make no-budget films. They have a few films on their page, and a links page as well
Sick Individual Productions – Very good site of a no-budget production company based in Australia. Most impressive tutorials, guides, and original films.
Sunset Films – Nice site for a good company. They have a good number of films and other things on their site.
Backyard Productions – Most of you probably know of them. Backyard Productions is a great company who focuses on making spoof movies such as ‘The Emperor Strikes Backyard’ and the very popular ‘Doom Raiders.’ Great site as well.
AMF Productions – Wow. We are on a roll with good studios. AMF is one of the best in my opinion. Not only do they have a great site, but they make some of the funniest films ever. Definitely check them out, and watch ‘Hamlet’
Never Dead Productions – Good site, with plenty of films and a forum to keep you busy. WARNING – Site can generate pop-up ads
Maia Entertainment – And another great site. Plenty of films and info on this one, and a good web designer to boot.
ASAP Films – Yet another great company. They have a ton of downloads and short films on this site.
Matt Hawkins –Most of you know of this site, and it is probably the best amateur filmmaking site out there. TONS of tutorials and stock footage, totally free.
Dastoli Digital –This was a hard one, but I decided to give Dastolia Digital a smiley. Their site is well designed, and has nothing really but films on it, but the films are of very good quality.
Superteam Productions – This is a good site with some nice films on it, but there isn’t very much to look at.
Fourway Productions – A nice site with some films and tutorials on it, but not good enough to get a smiley
Sonnyboo Productions – Most of you probably already know of Sonnyboo, but those who don’t should check it out. Great site with plenty of movies, tutorials and downloads.
Peerless Productions – This is a great site. Tons of films and they are all original and well made. Also, tons of effects tests, also very well made, and some tutorials as well. VERY GOOD!!!
Slipstream Pictures – This site is not that great, but they have a couple of films online.
Motion Arts – This gets a smiley mainly for the great site design, but they also have some nice films online.
Spare Time Films – This is not all that great, but they have a couple of funny films up.
No Control Cinema – And of course, the website for No Control Cinema, by our very on Sollthar. Just great. Tutorials, movies, etc.
Redhawk Productions - The website of Fxhome's Redhawksrymmer. Currently he has just a couple of films uploaded, but keep checking back.
BM Productions - On this website, the studio page of Fxhome's brennanmceachran, there are a few FX tests, but tutorials are on the way.
Oeyvind's Website - And another site by an Fxhome user, Oeyvind's site has a couple of effects tests, a forum, and some links. Enjoy!
Wildstorm Films - This is the great website of Fxhome's wildstormfilms, there are a number of films, tests, tutorials, links and more.
COMV Productions - Now this is a NICE site, the official webpage of COMV Productions. The site is nice, the films are good, and it is constantly updated.
Atomised Entertainment - Atomised Entertainment has a great site, and is also run by Pooky of Fxhome. Not a ton on here, but a few nice films, plus great web-design earn this site a smiley. Way to go Pooky!
WFH Productions - The website of Clintorules of Fxhome, who has just released a new film, in the cinema. He has a couple of films uploaded currently.
Movie Seals - Now this is a great site. Done by JohnCarter of Fxhome, this site has an abundance of material to keep you busy
Initial Productions - I love this site!! Fxhomer ssjaaron has done a great job! This site is packed with tests, tutorials, films, and info in general. Cool layout as well.
Evil Feather Films - The website for Limey12345 and Evil Feather Films. They have a few films online right now.
AJPictures - Andreas of Fxhome has a really nice site with lots of tutorials and films up.
Blue Smoke Studios - Great site here. Plenty of projects, updates, and a forum as well.
Imagine This Productions - This french production company has numerous films, photos, and links on their site, earning them a smiley.
Detonation Films - This is the ULTIMATE site for explosion, sparks, detonation, etc. stock footage. And it is all FREE!!! Definitely one of the best.
De-Evolution Studios - The site of Fxhome's Evman gets a smiley for the cool web design and impressive number of films uploaded. There are also photos, contact info, and links on his site.
Cobra Productions - Nice site for Cobra Productions, with a media library, updates, films and more.
Dennis and Ronnie - The website of Aculag's Dennis and Ronnie Films has lots of films, tutorials and more to look at.
Unwanted Pictures - Seven of Fxhome has said he would update this site. There's some info about their upcoming film, links, trailer, and message board.
Linn Productions Media Page - This is not their official site (a link is at the top of this page) but their media page. These guys now do it for a living, but on this page you can check out some of their work. Especially their feature film made in 1992, Indiana Jed.
FC Rabbath Creations - The website of FXHomer FCRabbath has quite a few films, music videos, etc. uploaded. It is still being updated and reformed, but the nice site design, and the sheer amount of content already online earns it a smiley. Nice job
Atomic Productions - Atom's studio site is very nicely designed, easy to look at, and has plenty of things to go through. Very nice.
Maximus Films - The creators responsible for the amazing trilogy of the Movie Spoof. The site is lacking in extra content, so it does not earn a smiley, but check out all of their films.
Send Sardines Please Productions - Jazzmanian's site has some pretty good stuff, but is not very well designed and still does not have the efficiency and content quality of some of these sites. He is working on updating.
Odyssey Studios - Zero767 has created a new site, and though it does not have a large amount of content uploaded yet, the beautiful design and obviously well organized pages earn it a smiley.
New Heavenly Films - This site is a Freewebs site, and is not the greatest site in the world, but Orin Warren has done a pretty good job at mantaining this free site.
Tactical Productions - devilskater has a simple site, but that in itself earns it a smiley. The ease of using the site and the reasonable amount of content is nice.
Here are some individual film websites, but all of these are of good quality, so smileys are unnecessary.
Movie Spoof 1 - This is a great beginning to in my opinion, the best fanfilm trilogy ever. Check it out. (NOTE, if you are disappointed by this film, do NOT hesitate to watch the second as it is much better)
Movie Spoof 2 – Now this is great. All three of the Movie Spoof films are great, probably my favorite fanfilms of all time. Plenty of documentaries, pics and video stuff for you here.
Movie Spoof 3 – It’s not out yet, but it is going to be great. Already some great trailers and pics online for this one.
Project One – And, most of you have already visited this site, but if you haven’t, check it out. The official site for Project One by Joby ‘er-no’ Stephens and Adam 'flameboy' Kirley. Great stuff!
Nightcast – The website for Nightcast, the feature film by Sollthar and NCC, currently in Post. Check it out!!!
Broken Allegiance - This is an awesome Starwars Fanfilm. The movie is great, the site is great, and there is plenty on it to occupy you.
Revelation - One of the biggest Star Wars fanfilms ever made, Revelation is a great production. And the site has lots of goodies to sift through.
I hope that this was useful, and if you have any links for me to put up, just let me know.
